The Thinkers

by Luca Novelli


Sofia is a millennial.

“Does that make me a thousand years old? Ten thousand? A hundred thousand?!”

In her own words, she tells the story of three important feelings that warm the hearts of humans. In the process, she introduces us to a cast of human and animal characters – from sardines to rhinos, from Confucius to Buddha, from Plato to Voltaire, from Bacon to Washington.

Written with simplicity and humor, each story leaves an indelible mark and fuel for further thinking. In other words, this is philosophy for kids.
